Chief Executive/Founding Partner
Steve is always in search of the big idea. Because they move us forward, make us fly, and take us places we’ve never been before. To Steve, big ideas start companies like RPM.
From his time at FCB/Los Angeles and Nahser Advertising, Steve’s forward strategic thinking was instrumental on clients like General Motors, Farmers Insurance, Bang & Oulfsen, Schwinn Bicycles and more. That wide ranging experience and reputation for big thinking continues to serve Steve well as he leads one of the most successful private agencies in the Midwest.
After championing some of RPM’s biggest campaigns including Horseshoe Casino, Harrah’s Entertainment and Caesar’s, Steve’s vision was a guiding force in the critically-acclaimed documentary, Not Yet Begun to Fight.
Currently, he serves as a board member on the Chicago Public Library Foundation and the Illinois Chapter of the March of Dimes. Steve received a B.S. in Organizational Communications at Arizona State and has earned a Commercial Pilot’s License
